Topper's Pizza is serving up a helping of support for people being affected by COVID-19, and those working on the front lines. 

As of March 24, $3 from every Family Pleaser Combo sold will be donated to help local food banks and Feed Ontario's COVID-19 Emergency Food Boxes to support our communities. Customers can also choose to give additional donations of $1, $2, or $5.

Second, as a special thank you to health-care workers and first responders, starting March 25, Ontario health-care workers and first responders (police, fire and paramedics) will receive 25 per cent off any large pizza.

“These are unprecedented times and families are experiencing ever-increasing stress and worry; many having been laid off,” said Keith Toppazzini, co-owner, Topper's Pizza Canada. “Our local food banks are stretched thin and our health care and first responders are working around the clock to help Ontarians stay healthy and safe. Many people are going above and beyond to help. For these two groups specifically, they have added pressures and we wanted to help. 

“Our pizzerias are locally operated, and giving back to our communities is of great importance to Topper's,” said Marie Fennell, president, Topper's Pizza Canada. “We are so thankful for our health care and first responders' dedication and hard work during this time. As well, supporting our customers and families facing food shortages during difficult times is critical. We encourage every company, neighbour and community member to try to help in some small way.”

The Feed Ontario Family Pleaser program is available through delivery, contactless delivery and take-out by ordering on the Topper's App, website, calling 310-7171 or in-person at our pizzerias.

Health-care workers and first responders can get 25 per cent off their large pizza offer through pickup, by showing their credentials. Health-care facilities, police, fire and paramedic stations can also receive delivery from their local Topper's Pizzeria to their facilities main lobby or front entrances by calling 310-7171.

“We are currently offering take out and have implemented additional measures to continue offering this service safely for our employees and customers,” said Fennell. “The advantage of delivery to health care and first responder stations adds a layer of convenience and helping them eat during breaks, without leaving their posts, in this time of need."
